Quotations


Outer space (noun)
  • 1842 - Emmeline Stuart-Wortley, The Maiden of Moscow (1842).
    The World--that rocks--and heaves--and beams!--
    A Stormy Sun, itself it gleams!--
    Keeps this, indeed, its place of old?--
    All seems down steep Destruction rolled!
    All Earth in madness moved,--o'erthrown,
    To outer space--driven--racked--undone!
  • 1849 - Thomas Buchanan Read, Lays and ballads (1849).
    DEATH.
    What they who find me make me---Shall we go?
    OLD MAN.
    Whither?
    DEATH.
    Upward---and onward, into outer space,
    Where she, thy kindred spirit, waiteth thee.
